I feel your pain man. whenever I have something I need to do I start cleaning. It's an aversion to effort on my part.

Someone once and for all needs to figure out why this place is so addictive.

I think we are all high speed information junkies.

The polarity in this forum forces out the extremes of information and gives you both sides and so many perspectives in and in between on an issue.

It's like high energy, multi-d consciousness in a bottle when everyone comes together here from the far left to the far right and everywhere in between.

There's things to intrigue, inspire, laugh about, cry about, get angry over, get pleased over, love, hate, be indifferent towards all in one threads reading.

It's a sensory overload that overwhelms and floods the system and gives us a juiced up energy high I think.

Mostly, I think its because we also have instant gratification addictions. We want feed back and answers and we want it now.

If you write your paper tonight,  the world might end in the morning. It may take days to get your feedback from the teach and that's hours of work on your part, for just one guy to read it.

But here, you'll start getting feedback in seconds to minutes and dozens to hundreds will read you before the world ends tomorrow.

Face it, if you are addicted to the shroomery, you are a speed freak and want to get in as much info as you can before the world ends tomorrow. It feels like it's going to because were all speeding so fast.

That's why so many of you like pot, it's slows your speeding ass down.

The shroomery is a chemical rush.

People drawn to this place like chemical rushes.

We procrastinate and put shit off in a lame attempt to make it appear as if our speeding ass has more time. We like the slow mo warping effect in contrast to the speed.

We also like to knock shit out under pressure at the last minute because when we push the limits, we get another adrenaline chemical rush.

That's my hypothesis! :crazy2: :crazy2: :crazy2:

Just having fun!!!!!!!!!!!! :wink:

I can't endorse the notion that the shroomery is addictive in that fashion. If I have work to do you won't see me around here. I consider this to be a healthier alternative to video games or T.V. as it inpires critical thought, and allows the use of advanced concepts in language. I once had an alcohol addiction...I know what an addiction is about...this place doesn't have that hold.

No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

LOL!

yeah dude, I procrastinate like a motherfucker too! But I'm trying to nip it in the bud. I've got fanastic dreams and ideas for my future, and unless I start acting on them now they will only remain dreams...
